5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
not bad for a 2 nights stay but not so good either

The stay was overall good, but for the price offered, the experience could be better in terms of the comfort and the quality of the furniture in the rooms. Another minor issue: the channels on the television are prefixed and incase you request the reception to add that one channel(Sony channel), they bluntly refused to do so. I expected better from a 3.5 star hotel to not overlook these minute but important details

3/5

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service

The decor in the lobby and inside of the hotel was really beautiful and artistic. The food was not good at all, and they run out of items during breakfast, so it was more of a first come first served.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Luxurious and comfy rooms. A bit far from the seaside.
